Jim Ellis Volkswagen of Kennesaw - Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ)

ID Crozz Concept Car Dimensions & Interior

Forget about modern. The ID Crozz is downright futuristic. Considering it's a concept vehicle that is still evolving, we can count on other Volkswagen EV vehicles benefiting from the technology found in this ground-breaking model. In fact, the ID Crozz was the basis for what we now see as the ID.4 production vehicle. The ID Crozz has intuitive safety features that are almost human in functionality. Imagine standing on a street corner looking to cross. How do we typically communicate with drivers inside vehicles as they approach an intersection? We look, make eye contact, and then determine what to do next. Now imagine standing on a street corner, looking at an ID Crozz approaching you that is driving itself. Its headlights can wink, squint, stare, and signal to you, indicating direction of travel intent.

 The ID Crozz (and the production-ready version known as the ID.4) is a crossover SUV. With an overall length of 182.1 inches and a wheelbase of 109.2 inches, the ID Crozz promises copious storage space and sublime passenger room and comfort. The ID Crozz is an EV that doesn't compromise interior space. In fact, its advanced technology maximizes cabin utility with all powertrain components tucked neatly out of the way. Early renditions of the ID Crozz have forward doors that open a full 90 degrees, with rear doors that slide directly back. This opens the cabin completely, with no B-pillar post, which allows you to open up and say WOW. Rear seats are also configurable to maximize cargo loading.

ID Crozz Specs & Range

Built on Volkswagen's EV-specific MEB platform, the 83-kWh lithium-ion battery tucks stealthily between forward and rear axles. Unique to the ID Crozz, traction comes from a dual-electric motor powertrain that favors rear-wheel-drive until conditions or driving style demand AWD. The ID Crozz has a rear-wheel-bias that delivers 201HP instantaneously to the rear axle, and an added 101HP responds immediately on the front axle when eAWD is needed. You needn't do anything. The system works automatically. Rated at a combined 302HP with a top speed of 112mph, the ID Crozz will yield a range of up to 311 miles on a full charge (according to the NEDC).

 While vehicle usage has a lot to do with an EV vehicle's total range, Volkswagen boasts an incredibly fast charge time from depleted to 80% full-charge. With a stated "thirty-minutes to 80% full" at a DC fast-charger, there is virtually nothing stopping you from getting to Woodstock on time, no matter where you are starting from. The national network of DC charge-points is currently 16K locations strong and growing, which means all you need to do is stop for lunch, have a stretch, and hit the road again with almost a full charge. Home charging in a conventional power outlet is available, and AC charging is also made easy with the corresponding cable. Many EV enthusiasts ask why batteries can charge faster to the half-way point or almost-full point, and almost as long to a full charge. Think of it like pouring water into a glass. You fill the glass pretty quickly to about 75% and then slow down for the remainder so you don't spill. Batteries protect themselves from over-charge in the last stage of the charge cycle. Thus, the charging of the ID Crozz battery is like filling up your glass of water. The ID Crozz achieves a fast charge to 80% at 30 minutes and then to full in about 30 minutes more.

So let's talk about what it might be like behind the wheel of your new ID Crozz… if, in fact, you don't have the wheel retracted into the dash while on autopilot. The ID Crozz is making huge waves with its innovative ID Pilot autonomous driving mode. All you have to do is touch the VW logo for three seconds, and the steering wheel will tuck into the dash, ambient lighting will shift to violet, and you're driving into the future. You can come out of autopilot just as quickly by touching the VW logo for three seconds, or by tapping the accelerator, or the brakes. Cameras replace your rearview mirrors, laser scanners deploy from the roof, and alongside your media information, you will have a digital view of the world on your three-tiered information center. Did we mention that the windshield is going to be a virtual data display center as well? George Jetson never had it this cool.
